ALA and Library of Congress Will Create Primary-Source-Led Book Series for Students
The Library of Congress and ALA Editions are co-publishing a new educational book series, Discover and Learn With the Library of Congress, which will combine “facsimiles of primary sources from the Library’s unparalleled collections with background information and teaching strategies” for “teachers, librarians and home educators working with grades 6-12. Organized thematically around topics frequently taught nationwide—and designed to support state curricula and teaching standards—these accessible resources will provide proven, student-centered, inquiry-based strategies for teaching with primary sources. Selections feature perspectives and voices that are often missing from typical textbook narratives and reflect best practices in information literacy by providing source citations, information about the sources’ origins, and guides to additional online resources.”
The first book in the series, The Civil Rights Movement, will publish in late 2024.
For more information, read the press release.
